This week we are welcoming back Ryan Chukuske specifically to hear about his adventure racing the Bigfoot 200 out in Washington a couple weeks ago!
Ryan does a great job describing his race experience. Everything from the hilarious bus ride to the starting line to sleeping in the sleep stations to the challenges of the actual course. He also shares some strategies and tricks of the trade he observed from the other racers.
If you’re interested in racing a 200 mile endurance race, you DEFINITELY need to give this episode a listen! Ryan really puts you into the race and will help you truly understand what you are getting yourself into.
If you are like me and simply confounded by the whole dang thing, also be sure to tune in! It really gives you the impression that anything is possible.
Hope you guys enjoy! We will definitely chat with Ryan again as we approach the release of his book “Bigfoot 200: Because, You Know, Why the $%#@ Not?” which chronicles the event from the perspective of Ryan, a plethora of other racers, the course medic, and the race director! It’s going to be an awesome read for all you endurance junkies out there!
